In today’s generation, customers have become dependent on their smartphones for all type of interactions. Small cells are low-power base stations that are basically used to improve network capacity and network coverage which in turn helps end uses to strengthen their wireless connectivity. 5G telecom operators are basically focusing on deploying small cell under low frequency band for providing improved bandwidth services to customers. Femtocells are invented to provide extended coverage for residential applications and enterprises. Picocells are suitable for applications extended network coverage, small-scale enterprises and data throughput. Microcells are invented to support slightly large number of users and cover larger cell size. Therefore, they are suitable for applications such as smart metros and smart cities.
Continuous increment in mobile data traffic across the globe is driving the growth of the Small Cell 5G network market. 5G networks are anticipated to carry about one-third of the mobile data traffic, globally. Therefore, the demand for technically advanced telecommunication network is increasing favorably. The CBRS band is the key factor driving the small cell 5G network market. Small cell offers cost effective mobile coverage solutions for large enterprises and third-party neutral host providers and enables multi operator support. CBRS small cell network untangles network integration efforts and is able to improve the user experience as compared to wi-fi offloading. Poor backhaul connectivity is the major restraint of the small cell 5G network market it is due to ultralow latency of 1 millisecond (ms) connectivity requirements.
Covid-19 pandemic resulted in surge in implementation of industrial automation across various industry verticals such as discrete manufacturing, e-commerce and transportation & logistics sectors which will drive the demand for the 5G for IoT connectivity. In the European regions, a number of countries such as Italy, UK and Germany are hit by Covid-19 due to which various 5G rollout plans have been delayed.
The report analyses of the small cell 5G network market is segmented based on frequency band, radio technology, cell type, applications, end-user and by geography.
By type, the global small cell 5G network market is segmented into low-band, mid-band, and millimeter wave. In terms of value sub-6 GHz dominates the market. This is due to the large investments by key communication service providers in obtaining mid-band and low frequencies to deliver high bandwidth services to businesses, consumers and industries. Furthermore, small cell component providers such as Qualcomm Technologies Inc invented new chipset for 5G small cells, which supports both mmWave frequency bands and sub-6GHZ.
By radio technology, the global small cell 5G network market is segmented into standalone and non-standalone. The non-standalone segment is expected to dominate the market in the upcoming years. This is due to rapid digital transformation among different verticals and increase in government investments and initiatives for the connected networks. However, the standalone segment also witnessed high growth rate in the forecast period due to high usage of smartphones and rushing demand for high-definition content among consumers, which has led the network service providers to shift from 2G, 3G and 4G networks to 5G services.
The global small cell 5G network market by cell type is segmented into femtocells, picocells, and microcells. Femtocells segmentation plays a major role as femtocells are invented to provide extended coverage for residential applications and enterprises.
The global small cell 5G network market by application is segmented into indoor and outdoor. The indoor segment is high in demand due to the wide range of functionalities, such as improved network coverage and high indoor network connectivity. The deployment of indoor small cells is high due to major deployment of small cells in places such as stadiums, shopping complexes, college campus and residential buildings. The 5G indoor small cells marketspace is anticipated to grow significantly in the upcoming years.
The global small cell 5G network market by end user is segmented into residential, commercial, industrial, smart city, transportation & logistics, government & defense and others. 5G RAN network help organizations and enterprises to cater to the demand for massive coverage needs and data capacity at a very affordable cost. Moreover, small cell 5G networks also helps enterprises to utilize the broadband infrastructure to install next-generation networks.
